A Floral Spectacle Experience Exotic Orchids & Bromeliads at Flamingo Gardens

Dive into the world of vibrant flora at the 42nd International Orchid and Bromeliad Show, hosted at the lush Flamingo Gardens. This esteemed event, presented by the Flamingo Gardens Orchid Society, showcases a breathtaking collection of rare and exotic orchids and bromeliads, each competing in an American Orchid Society-judged show. Visitors will not only feast their eyes on these stunning displays but also have the opportunity to purchase these beautiful plants directly from a selection of vendors specializing in orchids, bromeliads, and related supplies.

The festival atmosphere is enhanced with live music that brings the Island vibes to life, courtesy of Polynesian Proud Productions, alongside traditional dances that promise to captivate. Adding to the excitement, the Flamingo Gardens Orchid Society will host a raffle, and guests can savor a variety of multicultural dishes available from local food vendors or the Flamingo Pond Café & Grill. Art enthusiasts will be thrilled to explore the Microsculpture exhibit in the Gallery, with additional displays scattered throughout the arboretum for a deeper dive into this fascinating art form.

For those looking to deepen their knowledge, the event offers in-person classes and presentations on orchid care and cultivation, available for an additional fee with limited seating to ensure an intimate learning experience.
